Sausage Ravioli Filling

Ingredients
4
ounces bulk Italian sausage
3/4
cup packed fresh spinach leaves
1
egg yolk, lightly beaten
1/3
cup ricotta cheese
1
teaspoon snipped fresh sage or 1/4 teaspoon dried sage, crushed
1/8
teaspoon grated whole nutmeg

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat until brown, using a wooden spoon to break up sausage as it cooks. Stir in spinach; cook and stir until wilted. Drain off fat. If mixture is too coarse to stuff ravioli, transfer to a food processor or blender; cover and process or blend with several on/off pulses until chopped.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine egg yolk, ricotta cheese, sage, and nutmeg. Stir in sausage mixture. Cover and chill until needed.

Homemade Ravioli

Ingredients

Dough:
3 1/2
cups flour
3
eggs
3
tablespoons salad oil
1/2
cup water
1/2
teaspoon salt
Meat Filling:
1/2
pound beef, cubed
1/2
pound veal, cubed
1/2
1/2
cup chopped celery
1/2
cup chopped carrots
 
Salt and pepper
1 1/2
cups cooked, chopped spinach
4
eggs
1
cup grated Parmesan cheese
Breading:
4
eggs, beaten
2
cups milk
4
cups seasoned bread crumbs
 
Grated Parmesan, for garnish
 
Tomato sauce, for serving

Directions

    For the dough:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add all of the ingredients, and mix until the ingredients come together to form a dough. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 to 15 minutes. Wrap in plastic wrap and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F.
  3. For the meat filling:
  4. Combine the beef, veal, onion, celery, carrots, salt, and pepper in a roasting pan and roast until cooked through, about 1 hour. Let cool.
  5. Add the spinach, then grind ingredients in a meat grinder with a fine grind. Add the eggs and cheese, and mix well to create a paste-like texture.
  6. Roll out the dough on a floured surface using a rolling pin. Make a large, very thin layer of dough. Spread out a thin layer of filling on half of one side of the dough, using a spatula. Fold the dough end over the filling side of the dough. Mark the filled dough with a ravioli marker (ravioli rolling pin). Cut ravioli out using a ravioli cutter. Freeze until hard.
  7. To bread the ravioli:
  8. Make an egg wash by mixing together the eggs and milk. Add the ravioli to the wash, then dip in the seasoned bread crumbs. Refreeze until ready to fry.
  9. Preheat a deep fryer to 350 degree F.
  10. Fry the ravioli until golden brown. Serve hot on a plate sprinkled with freshly grated Parmesan on top and tomato sauce on the side.
